Rock the Party
The bling trend report that will help you accessorise right this season
AT ISHARYA, WE have worked with American, European, Middle Eastern and the Indian markets over the past 15 years, and we’ve learnt a simple rule when it comes to jewellery trends: What works in one market may not in another, so one has to understand the pace and pulse of sensibilities around the world and identify what will resonate where.
While European and American markets prefer natural stones and rich, deep colours but subtle silhouettes, India and the Middle East are culturally bolder when it comes to jewellery. This festive season, this aesthetic takes centre stage globally—bold colours, intriguing shapes and fascinating materials are lending a playful touch to women’s wardrobes. While one holds their
mother’s heirlooms close to their heart, women are also investing in fierce and fun looks with innovative silhouettes, statement earrings, ornate cuffs and layered necklaces.
The traditional ‘chand bali’ and 'jhumki' silhouettes are a classic in festive wear and we have reinvented these with our signature gold-plated hand-cut polki mirrors this season. Apart from these traditional silhouettes, one can look at oversized hoops and dramatic earmuff style earrings that cover half the lobes or clip straight across, or sword style earrings that pierce the lobe. Our favourite innovation is the needle and thread style earrings that weave through the ear with feminine tassels and fringes.
Harnesses Are Trending
Maatha patti’s aren’t just for brides anymore and can transform a simple outfit into a stunning ensemble. The young bridesmaid is experimenting with body harnesses, shoulder harnesses and armbands to create a wow factor. Hand harnesses have been a festive favourite for some time now but clearly more is more. If you’re enjoying a new manicure, embellish it with a double-finger and triple finger ring as well as midi rings and stackable rings sets. This season, whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist, there’s a statement piece made just for you.
Mixed Metal Bangles Are Popular
For cocktail evenings and dinners, a statement cuff or an oversized ring still makes a popular conversation starter. Women are replacing pendant necklaces with the arm stack, where they play with mixed metals, different cuffs, bangles and charm bracelets to showcase their personal style. For example, our gold-plated resin bangles have been created in different colours for one to mix and match with their outfits.
Fierce looks, innovative silhouettes, statement earrings, bold colous and cuffs are all the rage WHIMSICAL AESTHETIC
